Polymorphs (PMN) and monocytes/macrophages (Mo) play a very important role in the host defence since they participate to inflammatory processes, tissue repairing and antitumor activity. Previous studies showed that lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-activated Mo are able to upregulate PMN phagocytic ability via cell-to-cell contact mechanisms mediated by bound to Mo(More)
Previous findings provided evidence that bacterial lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-activated human monocytes are able to upregulate autologous polymorphonuclear (PMN) phagocytic ability via cell-to-cell contact mechanisms mediated by membrane (m)-associated cytokines (CKs), such as tumour necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha, interleukin (IL)-1 alpha, IL-1 beta, IL-6 and(More)
BACKGROUND The clinical traits of Kufs disease (KD) type B (CLN13), an adult-onset neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis (NCL), are well established according to the neurological features of the cases reported with mutations in CTSF. The neuroradiological characteristics of this uncommon disease have not yet been outlined. CASE PRESENTATION We hereby report the(More)
In order to verify the immunostimulant effect of thymus humoral factors, a bovine thymic extract (TP 1-Thymostimulin) was given to 9 patients affected by primary immunodeficiency (mild deficit T/B combined) and to 8 patients affected by acquired immunodeficiency because of old age, lung neoplasm or with recurrent herpes simplex labialis. 6 patients affected(More)
